"The Summer Institute was invigorating! It helped me reframe my instructional practices through the lens of sustainability. The interconnections between social justice, equity and sustainability principles are now at the forefront of child centered learning in and outof my classroom. CELF’s place-based learning approach enhanced my ability to incorporate nature and real world experiences into standards-aligned curriculum. It was a transformative week!”
